Eustace Forth during her test run and the N-LR on 25th May 2019

Standard Travel Day Rovers give you unlimited travel for the day on the Northampton & Lamport Railway. Valid on normal service trains (non-event days – green on the timetable).

Travel along our one and half miles of running line through the Northamptonshire countryside. Trains leave on the hour from Pitsford & Brampton Station located between the two villages behind the Brampton Halt Pub.

Locomotive Power

This weekend will see the 0-4-0 saddle tank ‘Eustace Forth’ arrived at the N-LR. She is kindly on loan from the 7063 Locomotive Group and will be staying with us until the end of 2019.

7063 was built in 1942 by Roberts, Stephenson and Hawthorne Ltd at their Forth Bank Works in Newcastle. She was built for working at Dunston Power Station in Gateshead. She worked at Gateshead shunting coal wagons until saved for preservation by the Hexham Rolling Stock Group before being taken into the National Collection in 1978.
